our nation's capital. i'm john fugelsang filling in today and i'm delighted to be here with you. this is october 1 the birthday of mark mcguire and 88th 88th birthday of former president jimmy carter. it's cold in our nation's capitol but we are very pleads to be talking with you about the issues that matter most. please feel free to call us. >> good morning everyone. both candidates are gearing up for the first presidential debate. president obama will stay in nevada for the next few days to wrap up final preparations. he campaigned in las vegas last night to a group of 11,000 supporters and in an effort to manage his expectations said he's just an okay debater. >> i know folks in the media are speculating already on who's going to have the best zingers. >> you will. >> i don't know about that. president romney is a good debater. >> that is in response to reports that romney is prepping and plans on taking jabs at the president. obama spokeswoman is saying don't expect the president to fire any blows and he looks forward to continuing his conversation with the american people.
obama and mitt romney meanwhile battling it out in the swing state of ohio. john harwood joins us now with all the details. good evening, john. >> good evening, larry. you know, in the wake of that 47% video last week, mitt romney's got a new message and that's to tell middle class people as well as the poor that he cares about them. he did it on the stump in ohio today, he also did it in an interview with our nbc colleague ron allen just a few minutes ago. here's mitt romney. >> i served as a pastor of a congregation with people of all different backgrounds and economic circumstances that i care very deeply about the american people and people of different socioeconomic circumstances. and i think throughout this campaign, as well, we've talked about my record in massachusetts. don't forget, i've got everybody in my state insured. >> and here's some numbers, larry, that show you why that is mitt romney's message rather than tax cuts. you can't compare in the state of ohio where a new york times cbs poll shows mitt romney down by ten percentage points, president obama ahead on the econ
official tells politico today, lousy candidate, highly qualified to be president, just as john was saying. the candidate suit fits him unnaturally. he's naturally an executive. their headline, in the end it's mitt. i guess that confirms both of you in the sense that this man may have been a good businessman, but he's neither a good politician and he certainly wouldn't make a good president. >> i think not, martin. i mean, the skills and habits of a ceo are not those that one really needs in the white house. it's all about -- you know, you have to bring along congress. you have to bring along the country. you have to get stuff done. >> you have to have some policies and you have to win people's support. >> exactly. and you can't just say, well, it's going to be this way and it's going to be that way and you can't just, you know, change strategy on a whim or because you read the latest management gurus latest book. it doesn't work that way, and i think we would have seen that if it were at all likely that mitt romney would become the next president. i think it's becoming less likely and i t
and john kerry fought it out every day about the war. in 2008 we were at war, and barack obama and john mccain fought it out every day in that war. this week when the financial crisis was absolutely on fire, at that debate, they were talking about the wars. this year, president obama does bring it up, he does bring it up at most of his stump speeches, how he explains what he has done and planning on doing talking about the two wars. he doesn't have to say much more because he's speaking to an empty room. the romney campaign has no identifiable position on afghanistan. they have been unwilling and unable to hold up that side of debate and so regardless of what it means for the candidates as a country we are deprived of a national discussion about a war we are in. 70,000 american families having skin in the game right now. we have -- that's part of the reason i'm looking forward to the debates. some ways sort of a post-policy campaign. and you can't do that in a debate, at least unless the debate is really bad. >> this is -- this is billed as a domestic policy debate, but -- and there are so
. specifically he made the case then right or wrong that he was a better steward of the economy than john mccain in troubled times. romney's got to make that case in 2012. >> little different when you're running against an incumbent. right? there's not a direct parallel there. >> look at the transcript. he was running against president bush. that these set of economic policies are wrong and i have a compelling vision. whether he can do that is another story. >> your colleague e.j. deion wrote journalists are in search of defining moments and game changers. by this standard, romney needs to game changer. obama can live quite happily without one. so do you think that mitt romney needs to have a big moment or if he is perceived to have won will at least give republicans some momentum. is that really the most reasonable thing to hope for? >> well, certainly it will. if the race were sort of fixed in time right now, everybody assumes that obama would win. in many ways that's happening because of early voting all right. so romney needs to change the trajectory in some way. now, that washington pos
the house. abc's john muller is here with the latest. john? >> reporter: ron, the amber alert, the children thought to have died in that horrible fire are alive. it took almost a week for this amber alert. but repeated searches for the children or their remains have turned up nothing. overnight, tennessee officials putting out a statewide amber alert. 9-year-old chloie leverette, and gage daniel. it's been six days since a fire torched the home with their step-grandparents. initially it was thought that the children and the grandparents died in the flames. but after six days of exhaustive searching inside the rubble, there's only physical evidence of the grandparent, not the children. >> if we just had ashes, you know, or the bodies. but we don't have anything. >> reporter: the amber alert reads, the location of chloie and gage is unknown. authorities have no reason to think the children have left the state. >> we don't have sufficient evidence from fire investigators right now to positively conclude they died in this fire makes us want to make sure that they are not somewhere else. >> repo
great john elway. president obama is taking the personal approach to nail down support. >> this is barack obama. >> reporter: and like romney, the president sees this debate as a chance to talk to america. >> it's a choice between two different paths for this country. it's a choice between two fundamentally different visions for our nation. >> reporter: the president has a lead in all nine of the key battleground states including ohio, which begins early balloting today. >> romney's task is difficult because he has to redefine himself as well as redefining the election. >> reporter: an election only 35 days away but still far from over. and the first debate is on the domestic issues that are defining this election. lynn? >> all right, brian, thanks. >>> elsewhere, the candidates for the u.s. senate in massachusetts, scott brown and elizabeth warren, debated for the second time last night. the two were combative as they staked out opposite positions on issues ranging from job creation to bringing home troops from afghanistan. nbc's david gregory of "meet the press" was t
. >> such a good job. >> gng to be an interesting couple of weeks. all right, thanks, john. appreciate it. president obama, the real president obama, is going to be campaigning in d.c. today. and a new memo that's been obtained by cnn shows that the romney campaign is apparently trying to lower expectations for the presidential debate. the first debate, of course is on wednesday. and in that memo romney adviser beth myers tells campaign surrogates there are several reasons that she believes the president will be likely to win the first debate, including this reason. here's a quote. this will be the eighth one-on-one presidential debate of his political career. for mitt romney, it will be his first. let's get right to congressman tim murphy, republican from pennsylvania. he's a romney campaign surrogate. nice to see you, sir. thank you for talking with us, appreciate it. >> good morning. good to be with you. >> thank you. i'm always very concerned on both sides in the campaign when they start saying really nice things about each other. everybody's been complimenting the other person's abil
appoi appointed, john roberts reflect the modern republican party. mitt romney, to be sure, would nominate someone like cavanagh, a young judge on the d.c. circuit. very conservative. not moderate republicans. that's why one seat would make such a difference. >> and those two have very clear records as did john roberts and sam aledo. we knew exactly who they were and what they would do. the senate wasn't ready to really look at that record and make an issue. >> can i ask a theoretical question. there's two ways of thinking about this. there should be a deference to the executive in naming nominees that comport with the president's legal philosophy, ideolo ideology. applying confidence because they are qualified for the job and hey, this is politics and a woman's right to choose on the line, this is a war against all against all. do what it takes. which is your belief system? >> you have to be confident and have an exemplary record. we need a candidate, republican or democrat who will accept the progress that has been made and be willing to advance that progress. that, to me -- >>
with a candidates, republican senator john mccain, and then the risk of being the frontrunner with obama's senior advisor david axelrod. die secretarying the campaign message. plus, polls, ads, and early voting. with republican strategist alex castellanos, and cinda lake and congressional correspondent dana bash. i'm candy crowley. this is "state of the union." >>> it would not be debate season if the political world and the campaigns didn't play the expectations game. >> the president is obviously a very eloquent, gifted speaker. he will do just fine. >> the president's campaign manager jim mecina called romney a very skilled debater and in an open memo to interested parties, senior advisor david axelrod just as he was in the primaries, we expect mitt romney to be a prepared, disciplined, and aggressive debater. joining me now is someone who knows a thing or two about expectations and debates, republican senator john mccain. a little trip down memory lane there. you smiled during it, i thought that was interesting. you debated both. size up the debate. >> i think it will be excellent. i think bo
.c. getting ready for wednesday's debate coverage is john berman. hey, john, good morning. >> we're doing debate prep just like the candidates here in washington. start overseas, soledad. the taliban taking responsibility for an attack in eastern afghanistan that killed at least 14 people. civilians, police, and three nato soldiers. officials say the suicide bomber targeted a joint patrol using a motorcycle packed with explosives. this attack comes a day after a firefight left two americans dead, including the 2,000th u.s. military member to be killed in afghanistan. >>> syria's foreign minister takes center stage on the final day of the u.n. general assembly session. he will address the delegates latest this morning and defend the assad regime's handling of the 18-month crisis that has spiraled into a civil war. syria has been a prime focus for world leaders at the united nations over the past week. >>> we are expecting an announcement today in that mystery surrounding the location of jimmy hoffa's remains. investigators are waiting for tests on mud and clay samples from a home in suburb
crime and justice correspondent joe johns. so, joe, let's break this down. since this is breaking news and you know how it can go with legal decisions, they can be looked at a whole lot of different ways. this particular case, this judge had to look at not the constitutionality of voter i.d.s, he had to look at specifically whether the people of pennsylvania all had equal access to get i.d.s and get to the polls in time. and he's reversed himself from his earlier decision. where does this leave us? >> well, big picture. okay, ashleigh, it's a victory for opponents of the voter i.d. law in pennsylvania but only for this election. what the judge in pennsylvania said is that for this election only, he is blocking this controversial voter i.d. law in pennsylvania. remember, there are a lot of other states that have voter i.d. laws. the reason the judge is doing that in that state is there's not enough time, he says, between now and november to get protections in place to assure that people who want to vote don't lose their ability to vote. so the state right now is cut off from implementin
chief, john rice, saying that basically, the audacity of your putting forward some of the proposals that you had, you do think that and frequently you were the only woman in the room, do you think that that worked against you, was it held against you? excluded from discussions because of it? >> i don't know exa lot of people ask me that question and young women ask me that question, feeling excluded or left out or not listened to, may be gender or not. you can drive yourself crazy trying to figure it out. there, were i think, people that had some lack of respect for the fdic, too reviewed us as the regulator for those little people that had less than $100,000 in the bank. i think there was maybe some arrogance toward the agency, too. so, i don't know why, but i do know that our voice wasn't heard as much as it should. i was not included in as many meetingsize should have been, not advance warning i should have been. >> one points, you were getting most of your information from cnbc. >> yes. >> that treasury and fed were not talking to you. >> they were not talking to us, like we wer
to john kerry a few years ago. but romney's people should have been smart enough to know this was happening. there was no presumption of that. they didn't get out aahead of the story. they didn't define their candidate well. there's two parts to this election, chris. one, is romney said a lot of people are unhappy with obama and his leadership and the economy. we accept that. he never made the connection that i'm the answer and solution. that's where the disconnect happened. >> mitt romney has been doing a lot to -- we saw it starting at the conventions. make himself more acceptable and help people understand him better. he's doing these direct into the camera ads. let me play one of those for you. >> more americans are living in poverty than when president obama took office. my plan will create 12 million new jobs over the next four years. helping lift families out of poverty and strengthening the middle class. >> the president is doing the same thing, doing some of these direct to camera. when you see a million ads in a battleground states, do these stand out? how do yo
and wavering conviction. >> let's get more on what's going on with our chief national correspondent john king and chief political analyst gloria borger. his aides keep saying he, but romney will never apologize for america. the accusation being that president obama has repeatedly supposedly apologized for america. >> you've heard this from lots of republicans and over the last year so that the president apologizes for america, that he doesn't believe in american exceptionalism. it's no surprise to me, wolf, that we're hearing this now. look, there's a crisis in the middle east. the only poll numbers in fact in which the president is going down are in foreign policy by sort of a handful of points. so this is a moment for mitt romney to take advantage of that. because in every other poll number, the president seems to be heading in the other direction, ie going up. so he's trying to take advantage of that and to tell people, you know, things aren't going so well in the middle east. this is a president who hasn't been as strong as he says he's been. and wants to get some kind of advantage and so

'm martha maccallum. the romney campaign is joining this growing chorus of lawmakers. senator john mccain saying the administration's response was inept and ignorant and susan rice blaming it on a spontaneous protest was inexcusable. >> it's either willful ignorance or abysmal ignorance to think people come to spontaneous demonstrations with mortars and heavy weapons pant attack goes on for hours. bill: both sides are complaining. governor romney's team says the white house is still getting its story mixed up. >> reporter: democrats say republicans are politicizing the tragic attack that cost of life of four americans. the republicans say the white house is cover ugging up the details for political reasons. here is axlerod. >> the president called it an act of terror the day after it happened. but when you are the responsible party, when you are the administration and you have a responsibility to act on what you know and what the intelligence community believed. >> reporter: actually it was several days after the benghazi attack before the white house called it terrorism and that came aft
john king joining us from denver, the site of the debate tomorrow night. john, you've taken a close look at these numbers. are there any nuggets in there that may be good for the romney campaign? because 70% of latinos saying they're likely to vote for the president of the united states, that's pretty bad for romney. >> reporter: wolf, i've scrubbed the numbers, looked at the cross tops and in a word, no, there is nothing encouraging for the romney campaign in the poll of likely latino voters. one way you judge an incumbent president, president obama, you ask people what do you think of job performance? all americans are split on that question. do they approve or disapprove of the president's job performance, but among latinos, nearly 7 in 10, 68% say they approve of the president's job performance. look across looking in here to find some nugget of hope for governor romney as latinos describe themselves as moderates, 76%. conservative latino voters, you would think that would be governor romney's base, 55% majority of conservative latinos plan to vote for the democratic president o
is the mock mitt romney, if you will, john kerry, senator john kerry of massachusetts, he also battle tested. he had his own experience in these debates in 2004. people forget he had a series of epic debates debating a republican governor of massachusetts who challenged him for his senate seat back in 1996. that was bill welles. so it's going to be intense, and as you mentioned, he leaves tomorrow, has one event on the ground when he leaves for nevada. then he goes to ground, training at altitude, because the debate is in the mile-high city of denver. but we don't expect to see much of him. he's going to be doing a lot of practicing for that debate wednesday night. >> this is president obama's first debate since 2008. governor romney had what seemed like 163 primary debates earlier this year. how confident are the president's advisers that he's not a tad rusty? >> reporter: you know, i think that that's something, a story line that they would like to promote. what we've seen, it's almost comica comical, to the extent we've seen both camps downplayings the expectations. so much of life is exp
place wednesday night. president obama is using john kerry as his practice partner. the massachusetts senator is portraiting the former massachusetts governor who is mitt romney, and romney is using ron portman as his obama. paul steinhauser has more on their practice sessions. >> reporter: good morning, gary. you know, it's pretty obvious. one will definitely dominate this week in the race for the white hoe. >> i'm looking forward to the debates. >> reporter: and the first of the three showdowns comes wednesday night when president obama and republican nominee mitt romney face off in denver. both candidates have a lot on the line, especially the gop challenger, who a few days ago gave some insight into his debate preps. >> it's great to have senator rob portman. you know, he debates me from time to time. he is playing barack obama in these mock debates we have. i don't like him very much anymore, all right? he keeps on beating me up and i keep on going away shaking my head. >> reporter: romney flies to colorado monday to hold a rally that night before hunkering down for final prepara
. and the person helping the president out, playing the role of mitt romney is senator john kerry. john kerry has been out there on the stage before, a veteran of the debate format and in addition to that he's from massachusetts. and he knows mitt romney well and will be able to help the president fill in any of the blanks he might have. >> dan lothian, thanks very much for that, appreciate it. >> okay. >>> on to the republican side now. mitt romney has been spending his time in boston ifffor the p couple of days doing his prep there. and part of that prep, admittedly is zingers. he's been trying out zingers on his staff since august. let's bring in paul steinhauser. first off, the zinger aspect, sometimes they make history and sometimes they do in debates, but is it a good strategy to think about zingers? or is it something that should happen organically? >> i think what the romney campaign would say, hey, while he's doing that, he's doing other things and preparing in a lot of different ways. i don't think we should take away from this that mitt romney's going to come out and have one zinger af
/seahawks game. the replacement refs became national bad guys. now, one is speaking out to john muller. good morning. >> reporter: good morning, dan. like most football fans i was ranting and raving about replacement refs. after hearing from one of them, it becomes clear, they're not monsters, they're imperfect human beings like the rest of us. >> wilson scrambles to keep it up. >> reporter: it was the play that changed everything, perhaps the worst and most controversial call. >> who did they give it to? >> touchdown! >> it's like a jennings interception. >> the call on the field stands, touchdown. >> reporter: the reaction was fast and furious. >> awful. look at the replay. >> reporter: this football fan didn't watch because he was on the field, mike, number 77, a replacement ref in the game speaks out for the first time. >> to see the game fall apart at the end, it was one of those things that makes you go back in the back room and cry a few tears. >> reporter: he had more experience than most of his fellow fill he ins. 13 years of division i college revving. >> you know someone asked me
to describe the pathway forward for america we would choose. >> i want to bring in john harwood and e.j. deion, author of "our divided political heart." thank you for coming on. we've been hearing this expectation game being played, the other side trying to make the other one seem as if they are the greatest debater who ever lived. let's start with a reality check and strength and weaknesses of these candidates. let's start with president obama. what is the strength in this debate? >> he's very well informed. he is a fluid speaker. he has served as president. he's got a tremendous amount of information at his command. he doesn't mess up very often. he simply doesn't create the memorable gaffe very frequently, although he's had a couple of things with "you didn't build that" and that sort of thing. >> his weakness? >> his weakness is he can come off as prophesorial and arrogant and long-winded. >> how about you? what do you think about the president? what has he got going for him? >> he should twitter because it would force him into shorter answers. he's got the advantage romney has a bunch of

for the american people. also democratic senator john kerry called rice, quote a remarkable public servant and state department put out a statement defending rice's comments to those sunday shows. the statement said, quote, at every turn, ambassador rice said she was providing the best information and best assessment that the administration had at the time. based on what was provided to ambassador rice and other senator senior intelligence committee but they knew one day of the assault that it was a coordinated terror attack likely tied to al-qaeda. congressman king wants to know why ambassador rice went on tv five days after the attack and said otherwise. >> the entire administration, miss informed the world and she was our representative to the world explaining what happened. virtually everything she said was wrong and the administration is trying to cover it by saying she was given the best information available at the time. >> molly: a spokesperson for james clapper says assessment was a spontaneous attack but at some point, that assessment changed and the intelligence community determ
